Share This Post

Chase Utley will not be in the lineup when the Phillies play their home opener at 4:05. The team announced early Tuesday afternoon that Utley is out with the flu.

Cesar Hernandez replaces Utley at second base and will bat seventh. Carlos Ruiz will take Utley's place in the order, batting third.

There are no other surprises to speak of.

Here's how the Phillies will face Brewers starter (and former Phillie) Kyle Lohse in order:

1. Ben Revere, CF
2. Jimmy Rollins, SS
3. Carlos Ruiz, C
4. Ryan Howard, 1B
5. Marlon Byrd, RF
6. Domonic Brown, LF
7. Cesar Hernandez, 2B
8. Cody Asche, 3B
9. Kyle Kendrick, P
